BENEFITING: Mom to Mom Child Poverty Initiative Society
ORGANIZER: Mom to Mom Child Poverty Initiative Society
EVENT DATE: May 07, 2017
Mom2Mom a community-based organization focused on improving developmental outcomes for children living in Vancouver's inner city. The work of Mom2Mom is based on research in child development and neuroscience that has shown that enriching children’s environments, lowering levels of family stress and connecting mothers to their child’s school and to community social supports leads to positive changes in children’s learning and development. When these things are in place, children are happier, better adjusted and more likely to succeed in school. Mothers are better able to nurture and attach to children when they aren’t struggling every day to meet basic needs. I will run the 2017 BMO Vancouver marathon to raise money for this organization. Please support me!
